Taunton School Scholarships

Every year at Taunton School, we are delighted to be able to offer Scholarship Awards.

Scholarships recognise high-achieving students across a range of areas – whether academic, artistic, musical, sporting or other areas of excellence. These prestigious awards offer the chance to benefit from an enriching and inspiring education at Taunton School, with awards of up to 40% of the tuition fee for day and boarding pupils.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school where we help challenge, nurture and inspire our students for the future.

Assisted places

Every year, we are delighted to recognise and support pupils who have artistic, academic or sporting gifts, with Scholarship Awards, Headmaster’s Awards and Bursary Awards (also known as Assisted Places). We warmly invite day and boarding pupils from any school to apply for an award and discover the benefits of an inspiring Taunton School education.       

Our Scholarship and Headmaster’s Awards recognise outstanding ability and potential in Academic, Sport, Music, Drama, Art,  Design Technology and Computer Science. Candidates may enter for more than one discipline or for an all-rounder which recognises academic ability plus another strength in a different area.  Awards are given for the whole of the child’s school career, assuming they continue to perform as a Scholar and some pupils will also receive fee assistance through Bursary Awards. At Taunton School we are proud to help our students to aim high and achieve their goals and this includes being offered places at Oxbridge and leading Universities in the UK, USA and Europe. We are educating our pupils to give them the qualifications and confidence to pursue their chosen careers anywhere in the world.

We offer the broadest possible curriculum in the Senior School and our year 11 and sixth form results are regularly amongst the best in the region.  As a non-selective school, we are particularly proud of this achievement and feel it is testament to our aim of helping every pupil reach their true potential.
